Register today to learn more of the valuable key findings.

Trucking HR will share new insights on how COVID-19 is affecting trucking and logistics employment, the industry’s take-up of COVID-19 emergency funding programs, the HR measures that have been implemented as a result of COVID-19 and how it will impact key activities over the next three to six months.

Since mid-March, the global COVID-19 crisis has significantly halted the Canadian economy. Amidst an economic shutdown, trucking and logistics have emerged as an essential service critical to the movement of health supplies, home and work necessities, and Canada’s food supply chain. Employees and employers have been heralded as heroes. Yet many employers have had to lay off drivers and other employees due to identified gaps in funding measures.
